The front desk staff go above and beyond any other for anything you might need, or questions you have. The rooms were spotless, compliments to housekeeping for their attention to detail. And the location is in a quiet area with a great spot on the river. Will be back over and over again.

My Fiance and I stayed here because the Marriott where our friends were getting married was extremely pricey! We knew we wouldn't be spending a lot of time in our room so we weren't too worried about the rooms. We were happily surprised with this hotel. The room was quite big and clean. The location is great to sit on...

My husband has actually been coming here for about fifteen years for fishing. Only for the last three or four years have we now been coming with our kids. We love this motel! It is quiet, very clean and the staff are all super nice! We love to come for fishing off the docks at night. We have made this...

Unable to find a pet sitter, my husband and I had to find a place to stay on Marco Island with our two 80 pound golden retrievers. Not an easy order to fill as most hotels & motels have weight limits. The Boathouse was recommended by another hotel and what a great tip it was. This is old Florida style...

First stay and ready to come back! It was our first time at Marco Island, and we fell in love with this paradise, in great measure because The Boat House is THE perfect lodging for such a beauty.

Second extended stay at the Boathouse and will certainly return again. Small family run no-fuss no frills, just a delightful tranquil setting that is also a short drive from the attractions of downtown and Tigertail Beach. Desiree should be declared a "National Treasure" as she makes you feel very much like a part of an extended family, really keen to...
